It feels somehow beholden of me to open with a positive sentiment toward 2021, and the opportunities ahead! 

As we closed 2020 on a European level, Novelis was pleased to celebrate the continuing upward trend on aluminium beverage can recycling, attaining 76.1% for the year 2018.

This is my first Chair’s piece of 2021, and I’m not sure if saying “Happy New Year” this late on in January is allowed, but I would like to wish everyone the best for 2021. Let’s hope it is better than 2020 regarding Covid-19, although when normality (or something like it) will ever resume is anyone’s guess. With the vaccination programme underway, it feels strange to think that a jab in the arm is one of the most exciting things we have to look forward to in 2021!
